Portion of Market Street to close

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Part of Market Street downtown will be closed for over a year starting Wednesday.

The Department of Public Works says that Market Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between Alabama Street and New Jersey street starting Wednesday and lasting until late summer or early fall 2016. Pedestrian access and emergency access will still be available.

Bicycle and pedestrian access to the Indianapolis Cultural Trail will also remain open.

According to Scott Manning with DPW, the closure is due to Cummins headquarters construction and Market Square development.

DPW suggest the following detours:

  • Drivers traveling westbound on Market Street should detour north on New Jersey Street, west on Ohio Street, south on Alabama Street, then continue west on Market Street.
  • Drivers traveling eastbound on Market Street should detour north on Delaware Street, east on Ohio Street, south on East Street, then continue east on Market Street.
